Random Rome, our second day

Our second day isn’t over but I thought I’d try to write now, while tastes of “zuppa inglese” gelato still dance on my taste buds. Nothing should be allowed to taste that good.Tomorrow we will be busy traveling and getting settled in Prato.

After much discussion regarding the merits of the On/Off bus tours, we opted for walking again today.

We saw Trajian’s column, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Spanish Steps. We also stumbled on this great place for paininis and smoothies called “Ginger sapori & salute” on Via Borogognona.

While walking we caught the romantic rhythms of musicians serenading patrons of various outdoor cafes. There were also a couple of creative street performers under the heading, “what were they thinking?” See them below.

I consider myself a narrative artist, fascinated by the uniqueness of our human experience. Sculpture has enabled me to capture endless stories. I’m particularly seduced by the tangible qualities of Clay. Process and product are equally irresistible to me.
